"Listen, I'm skinny but I'm tough," Sen. Obama said.
But in a nation in which 66% of the voting-age population is overweight and 32% is obese, could Sen. Obama's skinniness be a liability? Despite his visits to waffle houses, ice-cream parlors and greasy-spoon diners around the country, his slim physique just might have some Americans wondering whether he is truly like them.
But then again someone wouldn't not vote for him because he was too thin right?
"I won't vote for any beanpole guy," another Clinton supporter wrote last week on a Yahoo politics message board.
So are you reading this Senator Obama? Looks like it is time to stop exercising and hit up McDonalds 4 or 5 times a week so that you'll have a better chance this fall. Okay, I guess you better make that Burger King as you wouldn't want to go against the American Family Assoiciation boycott of that "pro-homosexual" company and piss off the religious vote.
Would something like this have appeared in the WSJ pre-Ruppert Murdoch?
